Wow, lots of helpful people. I guess if the Romans enjoyed watching men getting attacked by wild animals why should we?

Some guys are just asking for it. Wild animals are unpredictable.

No they're not. They're all cute and cuddly and just love to see people.

Amateur elk whisperer. What an idiot. He had many opportunities to get out of there. He obviously wanted to try to keep it going with the elk. Lucky that young elk didn't get fired up and skewer him.

Seems to me this idiot should have backed away Loooong before the elk got near him. Not for his sake, but to not play a game with a wild animal. He IS lucky he didn't lose an eye.

I agree, people wouldn't mess with wild animals, he could have been hurt seriously, not a smart idea.

That's the problem with a lot of people they just don't realize how strong these animals are he is lucky this wasn't a 3 year old and just a young bull not super aggressive. Even so that bull could have pierced him like a pin cushion.

Kind of like all the people I seen out of there cars along the hiway in Jasper taking pictures of a grizzly. Seriously one guys was like 15 yards away.

When we were staying in Waterton, a lady tried to put her niece on the back of a mule deer buck for a picture.

She tried twice actually.
And no, she was Canadian. The buck seemed to think it was unbelievable as well.

No why couldn't that have happened to me during bow season? Instead, they run and run when they see you...I guess the US elk are stupider than the Canadian elk...must be the school system or whats in the food...guys pretty lucky though. My big question is why did the lady just sit in her car window and not drive forward to help the guy? Or the guys running the camera...

good thing the photographer wasn't on a snowmobile.....he would have had to killed it right away ......sorry bad joke on my part.

he is lucky the elk didn't get more aggressive, but the guy did seem very calm and composed.i know I wouldn't want to put myself or the animal in that position, a lack of common sense yup, cant decide in my own mind if he is that far out of line though?

The guy was a dolt. Maybe it wasn't the elk that should have been put down. He didn't even attempt to try and get away or scare it off.

God must love idiots, seems like he made a lot of them.
One in the car which could have driven ahead to move the
elk, another one sitting on the ground and another doing
the filming.

This guy and that snowmobiling gangster that capped the moose could learn a lot from each other.

The young elk was getting more aggressive at the end. The guy shouldn't had been messing around like that. Of course I shouldn't talk.

Let the elk finish him off. It's a little thing called natural selection.

I was in Banff a couple weeks ago and saw a guy trying to pet a large bull elk that was wandering around the riverbank. He got about three feet away before the elk had enough and tossed his head in the guy's direction....I never saw someone run so fast

Wow he's lucky to have walked away from that one. I kept expecting one of those spikes to nail him.
